Los Angeles - Actor Fred Willard, perhaps best known as a dog show announcer in the movie Best in Show, has been arrested on suspicion of committing a lewd act at a Hollywood adult theatre.

According to TMZ, 72-year-old Willard was arrested for lewd conduct when police caught him with his pants down in an adult movie theatre.

Los Angeles police spokesperson Mark Ro says uniformed vice officers were conducting a routine investigation of the theatre on Wednesday and saw Willard engaging in a lewd act.

He says Willard appeared to be alone.

Ro says the 72-year-old was released without posting bail.

A call to Willard's agent, Mike Eisenstadt, seeking comment wasn't immediately returned on Thursday.

Willard was nominated four times for Emmys for guest roles on TV's Modern Family and Everybody Loves Raymond.

In addition to Best in Show, Willard has appeared in other Christopher Guest mockumentary films, including This is Spinal Tap and Waiting for Guffman.
